NYC Subway

For a while now New York City has tried to make the subway a bit less drab and dreary. There is still a lot of noise, unnatural smells, garbage, and rats. But it is a bit better. Really! There are rules about photography too. This is after 9/11. They always announce that large packages and bags are subject to random inspection. I’ve never seen it happen. And people are about photographing with iPhones and cameras. Still, I’m sensitive to avoiding official hassle. I was on my way to Coney Island for the Mermaid parade. Since my camera is always at the ready in my bag, I pulled it out, shot this, and replaced my camera in about a second. There’s something to be said for improving the subway experience.

  1. Nice they are adding graphics and art. I always remember dreary. 911 changed so many things, but glad the subway department is vigilant.

  2. This looks so much better, of course having a dog in the shot is unusual – glad you didn’t get your camera confiscated. Vibrant colors – how long do you think it will be before some tagger gets an itch to add his mark? I imagine the paint is easy to clean, keep em’ coming.
